Chandra's Baby Shower

My mom and I had a little baby shower for Chandra here at the house this past Wednesday. There were just 12 of us, including Mom, Chandra and me. We invited three others that couldn't come for various reasons, but had a good turnout overall. Our small gathering was perfect, though, because there was just enough room and it wasn't too loud or chaotic. My mom and I really don't like the silly games that people play at showers, so we just opted to have lunch and visit with our friends. Mom fixed chicken salad on croissants, and she made a yummy lemon cheesecake for dessert. We also had watermelon and veggies/dip.

After we ate, Chandra opened her gifts. People were very generous and she's got a lot of nice thingscute outfits, blankets, toys, diapers/wipes, baby gadgets, etc. Chandra is the one that usually takes pictures for me, but she obviously couldn't at the shower, since she was the guest of honor. I asked my friend Kellie to take pictures for me, and she obliged. Here are highlights of the shower, via pictures:
My mom, Chandra and I were all wearing similar shades of the same color, so we had to take a picture together. The next picture is of Chandra and her best friend, Michelle:
Chandra will be 39 weeks on Monday, so I wanted to get a last few pictures of her in all her pregnant glory, especially since she looked so pretty at the shower!
Quite the haul!
I cannot wait for Chan's little man to arrive!

Canada here, Niagara Falls, Ontario to be exact. Its 8:07 on a chilly Friday night and I'm sitting at a computer located inside the Hilton adjacent to the Niagara Casino. I'm not staying at the hotel rather waiting for a poker table to open up, I live about 3 blocks from the Hilton and stopped in to use their computer. Whomever was using it before left your page up so I've decided to leave a comment, if you don't mind. I've been reading some of your posts and the first thing that struck me is how I wish I could have your personality. I just wish I could smile like you, but I can't seem to these days, anyway the reason why I'm leaving a comment is to let you know that while I'm playing poker there will be an Elton John tribute band performing inside the casino right next to the poker area. I noticed you would like to meet Elton John so I just thought I'd let you know that at 9:00 pm Friday Oct.30 I will be hopefully listening to a wonderful rendition of Rocket Man while bluffing with a pair of 2's. I will be back to tell you what happened later, bye.
